Marvellous spot found whilst touring round the city. Made very welcome from the start lovely selection of snacks, meals and drinks - we thought it was all exceptional value whichever choice you made. The friendliness, cleanliness and charm of this place means we must return on the next visit.

Neat eclectic cafe at the top edge of one of Amsterdam's most interesting neighborhoods for small shops, restaurants and just walking along the canals. We stopped in for a mid-afternoon lunch -- food was good, service was friendly, fast and efficient, and while drinks are mostly beer and soda, they did have a decent white wine. Though small, still definitely... More

This is an odd review because we haven't eaten at Tin Pan Alley. We did stop this afternoon for a Heineken and a cup of tea at the small tables in the street. It was a great pit-stop and the restaurant looked really good; as did the menu. Stop for a drink and maybe you'll want to return for dinner... More

Came across this place by accident and did something we don't like to do: go into a completely empty place. But so glad we did and within 10 minutes, 5 more groups showed up. Food is very good and portions generous. Decor is warm and inviting and place is very clean. Small but good beverage choices. Whether its a meal... More

We enjoyed our coffees after a cold and rainy day walking around in Amsterday at this small but very cozy cafe. The neigbourhood is great.

We tried this based on reviews on the TripAdvisor city app for Amsterdam. After a short wait inside, we were able to sit outside, which was pleasant. Our meal was very good, I had mushroom ravioli and my husband had a burger, which he really enjoyed. The young woman behind the bar, taking the orders and serving, was very pleasant... More

Lovely little place. Good food, excellent service. Limited menu but we were after something simple. Generous portion of soup to start and the burger was excellent - couldn't eat all the chips and bread. Very quiet, calm atmosphere with nice volume of tasteful background music. Only thing missing is more people - on a Wednesday evening in April we were... More

Colleagues and I stopped here to have a light snack of appetizers. We sat outside - great views of the canals and streets. The food was good and reasonably priced.
